    Not a good look for Evans (if true), but how in the world the coach only got Evans 10 touches in that Katy game I'll never understand.  Someone needed to get in his face...

    I just had the pleasure of attending Bijan Robinson's opening game and holy crap he is something.  The first play on offense Bijan took a pitch to the left and took it 43 yards for a touchdown. He has so many gears that he can shift that he reminded me of Gayle Sayers which is the standard. He was so exciting that a elderly lady feinted on the play. The medics came and she was okay.
    The team the Lancers were playing was no good and I left at halftime when it was 49-0. Bijan did not play the final series of the first half and I hope the coach doesn't play him in the second half.
    My unofficial stats for Bijan were
    1st carry 43 yards TD
    2 carry 8 yards
    3 11 yards TD
    4 2 yards TD
    5  3 yards
    6  16 yards
    7 9 yards TD
    Total 7- carries 93 yards 13.2 yards per carry 4 TD's
    Latham Ransom caught a 57 yard pass and fumbled a punt. I was watching him on defense in case he switches to UT.
    I would like to see Bijan against a stronger team, however I'm excited for him to join the team next year if not sooner with all the injuries.

    I haven't even watched his film, but his testing numbers look solid.  His shuttle time (under 4.4) implies that he's got some quickness.  Seems like a project, but if you believe in your staff then those are good risks to take.

    I too grumble about Drayton as each 5-star ditches us, but if Ingram and Whittington end up being the players we think they are we've ended up with a solid RB room nonetheless.  And though we're not leading for any top guys right now there's a lot of time before signing day.  The only thing that would be shocking is if none of these top RBs have another twist in their respective recruitments.  He could still pull something off.
    If we don't get a top RB this year and don't have Wheaton committed then I have to wonder if Drayton moves on.

    Jumping back in time a bit here, but does it seem likely that Ja'Quinden Jackson was a silent commit for a while, and the coaches waited for an opportune time for him to go public?  If so that proved to be a genius move, as it reversed a bunch of bad press at the time.

    Sorry to interrupt this thread but looks like someone deleted the 2020 thread.  Can we get that back?

    Weird that Ransom and Robinson are both visiting tOSU and UT in the next two weekends, but not the same weekends.  Sure wish Ransom would switch his to match.
    If it's 3 commits I'd guess Robinson, Dorbah, and Thompson.  And I'll be very happy to be right.

    Not a real highly rated guy but his offer list (UMich, LSU, etc) looks good.

    Sounds just like AD back in the day.  The reality is that some kids want to be a part of building something, and some want to join something that's built.  Malik was one of the former, and though he didn't fully live up to his billing at Texas he still played an outsize role in getting us back to where we are today.  We don't land guys like Kris Boyd or Holton Hill without him.  Evans, evidently, is not one of those guys.  His top 5 are straight from the top 6 teams of the last 3 years.
    This feels like somewhat of a relief to be honest.  This one has been trending away from us and now maybe we can really focus on others (though I'm sure we won't give up just yet).  Robinson seems genuinely interested, let's reel him in.

    Why would he come here?  He's not going to choose to leave being the 3rd RB at Clemson to come be the 3rd RB at Texas.  GTs want a place where there is a gaping roster gap and they are very likely to start.  That's what got us Anderson and Watson last year, and why we've got a great shot with LB Johnson this year.  I'd love to get one, but our solid 4-deep at RB is not going to be appealing to a GT.

    This is a huge development.  He may not be a difference-maker as a player, but having a guy who has played a lot of P5 snaps would be a major boost to our LB room.

    This is a guy who would play this fall?  Why is he only taking visits now?  Is there reason to believe he's Texas good?

    Also makes for an interesting comparison with OU's incredible WR class.  Means we each pulled in two 5-star WRs, along with a high 4-star WR and a 4-star TE.  Very different players though, as their guys are pure WRs while ours tended to be swiss-army knives in HS.

    Yeah Shepherd was one who I thought had a bit of a low floor, but given our numbers on the OL we can't afford to be picky.  Unless things at OL and RB take a significant turn for the better in the next few months those whiffs will reallly undermine an otherwise solid class.

    Remember, this class is on the heals of a 7-6 season.  Let's see how they do next year coming off a B12 CG and Sugar Bowl appearance.

    I'm still waiting for a kid from Texas who is committed to Alabama or Ohio State to decide it's too far for his parents to travel and flip to Texas.  Would be nice to be on the other end of these deals.
